The Methodist Church has worked with A Rocha UK to develop Eco District. In March 2019, Methodist President, Revd Michaela Youngson, commended the Eco Church award scheme and the adoption of Eco District by the Methodist Church.
The award affirms the District’s attention to the care of God’s creation and encourages the adoption of Eco Church by churches in the area.
As a District we have registered our intention to work towards becoming an Eco District.
We have appointed a steering group to take the work forward.
We are working on a District Environmental Policy.
We have set up a District Eco Forum who meet twice a year on Zoom. New resources, ideas and achievements are shared by email to forum group members periodically. To register with the Eco Forum to receive future updates and details of meetings, please email email@example.com. In time, details of resources will be included on this webpage including details of awards achieved by our churches and circuits.
Currently across the District we have 19 churches registered for the Eco Church Scheme. 11 churches have achieved a Bronze award and 2 have Silver.
